the final Brisbane distance event

The 8k cross country is always a fun event and a great way to finish off running at the nationals. Except, I've rarely managed to survive that long, although a couple of my years in the M35s were an exception, as was Blacktown a few years back. Quite a few runners depart so the fields can be smaller than on the track, although with a Sunday finish due to Anzac Day instead of the usual Monday finish, maybe it was different this time. This year I am told the course was less than perfect. Mud, long grass, sharp corners; you know. So well done to those who did well.

Results 8k cross country
Bruce Graham
gold M45 and overall winner
Maria O’Reilly bronze W55
Katie Forestier 4th W45
Roger Pilkington 6-8th M50
Jeff Grey 8th M45

Remember no formal Parliament House training tomorrow but I have been told a few will still be turning up at the normal time. I shall see everyone on Thursday at Dickson!


  1. There were some pretty awesome efforts at Nationals! Well done all :o).

  3. Bruce's run in the cross country WAS brilliant and got him his well deserved gold medal.
